Earlier this week Noname revealed that she’ss changing the artwork to Room 25 after the artist behind the image, Chicago-based Bryant Giles, was accused of domestic abuse and rape on social media over the weekend. It was later discovered on Chicago Police Department website that records show that 21-year-old Giles was arrested on Oct. 8 and charged with domestic battery and bodily harm.

“In light of recent allegations, I will be working to replace the cover artwork of Room 25,” Noname tweeted on Monday. “I do not and will not support abusers, and I will always stand up for victims and believe their stories. My heart goes out to Ellie, her family, and all survivors of abuse.”

“Ellie” is a reference to Ellie Danisch, the woman Giles is accused of abusing. The allegation came to light because of a third party on Twitter.
